And some pics of the finished calipers. Not sure how I'm feeling them right now and they need something, just not sure what. Considering the Camaro logo in white or silver or maybe something else creative.

They just need a contrasting color pop somewhere. For the fronts, I'd pull the slider pins and any of the other hardware, clean off the orange paint, and re-do them in black or something.

Got the rock guards on the car! Zl1 add on's shipped em out super quick and couldn't wait to get them installed. They're just 4 flat pieces of plastic with some spacers and 3m tape. Rears need the rear tires removed for installation and the fronts can be put on with just turning the wheels. Only things I did different were the addition of extra 3m tape and extra washers for the spacers on the rear guards.

These things are great! Car was already starting to get some stone chips in front of the back wheels so these are a necessary addition (in my opinion) to any camaro that's going to be daily driven. It's also nice to have these on the car to keep the track rubber deposits off the body.

I am a massive fan of the rock guards. Not just for rocks, but for random water spray that you FREQUENTLY find here in Vegas from people over watering their lawns.

You know those guys that tape up behind the wheels with painters tape to keep the track rubber down? After racing at the track a few weeks ago it doesn't sound so crazy. lol. I spent about an hour scrubbing rubber off the paint later that day so these rock guards really do a nice job keeping the paint clean.

Griot’s Garage has a product called Track Spray which helps a ton. Just spray it on the “rubberized” areas, let it soak for a minute, then wipe it all off. Helps prevent swirl marks induced by the aggressive scrubbing you would normally do.

Found it:

I'll have to order some of this and give it a shot. Always looking for new products to test out.
